The Tudor Suite comprises an antique French double bed in one room and a single bed in a separate room; the two rooms sharing an en suite bathroom/toilet. It is thus ideal for a couple with one child, although this suite is equally available for a single or twin let as required. The French bed has a ‘ciel de lit’ with voile drapes. Tudor is at the front of the house with a view on to the Parish Church. Secondary glazing gives protection from any noise and blackout curtains are fitted, as the windows are South facing.Facilities include flat screen Freeview television and radio in each room, built-in wardrobe, dressing table, writing desk, central heating, tea and coffee making facilities and electric underblankets. A built-in mini-fridge is equipped with fresh milk.
Our famous breakfasts are served in the heavily beamed dining room. We always provide a a bowl of freshly prepared fruit for starters and then you may select from a full breakfast menu to follow. Of course, a full English is the favourite, but we cater for all requirements, including vegetarian. All ingredients are locally sourced, with eggs from a nearby farm and bacon and sausages from the local prize-winning butcher.
